Nationally renowned civil rights attorney Ben Crump is filing a lawsuit against Louisiana's agency overseeing child welfare over years-old allegations that Black children were sexually abused by "wealthy white men" while in the state's custody.

A man lent further credence to the allegations that R. Kelly is a child sex predator by testifying he met the singer in a McDonald's when he was a 17-year-old aspiring rapper and was eager to do "anything" to get into the music industry.

Tarana Burke, the founder of the #MeToo movement, wants sexual abuse survivors to have an easier time in seeking justice through the Child Victims Act.


Bishop Eddie Long has passed away and he will soon be funeralized. However, Black church communities cannot bury his troubled past with him. The church—New Birth et al.—must reckon with the Goliath of child sexual abuse and rescue the true Davids, our children, from the perverse and death-dealing realities of molestation, incest and rape.
